ACTIVITIES GALLERY

 

FARM ANIMALS OVER THE YEARS:

Visit the animals with us and maybe even help with chores.

ENJOYING THE BLINDMAN RIVER IN ALL ITS MOODS:

From relaxing on the banks of the river, to crossing it in your rubber boots, to canoeing on it in the summer, to skating on it in the winter

ENJOYING THE LAND:

In the summer, take stroll along the winding path through our gardens; or bring your rubber boots, cross the river (if it’s low enough), and take a hike across our land on the other side.

In the winter, hayrides and bonfires are available; as soon as there is snow, there are hills for tobogganing; and once the river ice is thick enough there is skating.

CREATIVITY IS OFFERED TO ALL:

Bring your own project and work on your own; or, if you prefer, we will share our knowledge and supplies, as we work with you, to help you succeed; either individually, or in a group setting.
